Calloway County Magistrate Candidate Calls for Second District Recanvass
Calloway County 2nd District Magistrate Candidate Bill Duncan is calling for a recanvass. He lost against Democrat Tim Todd last week by 41 votes, less than 2 percent of those cast.
County Clerk Antonia Faulkner says the recanvass starts 9 tomorrow morning at the Calloway County courthouse.
“We will have the paper tapes that are delivered from the machines,” she said. “We’ll read those numbers off, give the candidate the chance to add those numbers up and if there are any discrepancies we go from there.”
Duncan, a Republican, ran against the park tax referendum that failed to pass election night. He has worked 14 years with the road department installing water lines.
“I lost in an area that I worked very hard in. I knocked on a lot of doors there and my supporters are asking me to do this and I think I owe it to them.”
Tim Todd is dean of Murray State University’s business school and was unavailable to comment before press time. The second district covers southeastern Calloway County.
